New Haven, Connecticut, USA
Yale School of Medicine
Our lab studies mechanisms of lesion evolution and of neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis. We use multiple approaches, including iPSC derived, patient-specific neuronal cultures, human macrophage cultures, advanced histopathological analysis of MS autopsy tissue (we maintain a sizeable brain bank in our laboratory), ultra-highfield MRI imaging of MS patients and autopsy tissue, modeling of inflammatory demyelination in rodents. My lab will be moving to Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, CT (Department of Neurology) in Dec-2012 and the start date for this fellowship is Feb-2013. Cell biologist with experience with macrophage cultures preferred. Knowledge in lentiviral transduction and stereotactical injections in rodents is a plus but not necessary. Candidates are expected to obtain own funding within 2 years (e.g. National MS Society postdoctoral award). Interested candidates should send a letter of application along with their CV and 2 letters of reference to: Dr. David Pitt, assistant professor of Neurology and Neuroscience, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH.
